Tottenham Hotspur and Antonio Conte have now been gifted a triple boost before their game at home to Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Lowdown: Tough task
Spurs fans know that even though they are at home, beating the Seagulls to progress through to the next round will not be easy.
Should Levy leave Tottenham?
While they overcame League One Morecambe at home in the third round, Graham Potter’s men edged out an away win against Championship side West Brom.
In the Premier League, only two places and six points separate the two sides, while Brighton have actually conceded fewer goals and lost fewer matches than the North London club (Premier League), suggesting that the game could be tight.
The Latest: Early team news
As per The Evening Standard, new signing Dejan Kulusevski has now been granted a work permit, and so is in line to make his debut, although the Sweden international is ‘unlikely’ to start.
In addition, Son Heung-Min has now returned to full training, while Cristian Romero is ‘expected’ to feature for the Lilywhites for the first time since early November after recovering from a hamstring injury.
The Verdict: Huge boost
It certainly is a boost for Conte to have two of his main players back, as well as Kulusevski as a new and exciting option.
He is thought of very highly by both the Italian manager and Fabio Paratici, who see him as a ‘gem‘ with big potential, and on loan from Juventus, the 21-year-old will certainly have a point to prove.
Nonetheless, what better way to introduce himself to the THFC faithful than by scoring on his debut and sending them through to the next round.
